Multi-disciplinary Melbourne-based Emma Leonard creates art specialising in fashion and botanical illustrations, combining traditional pencil drawing, watercolour and oil painting with digital techniques. She was recently commissioned to illustrate the cover of the Australian Women’s Weekly ‘Royal Wedding Special Edition’, and contributed to Shout Out to The Girls, a book celebrating the incredible achievements of 50 high profile Australian women.

Emma has also created work for The Freedom Calendar, the proceeds of which were donated to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, and a suite of illustrations for fragrance house, SOH Melbourne. Emma’s clients include Mercedes Benz, Covergirl NY, Conde Nast, Random House, Grand Hyatt, Colgaqte, Mitsubishi and MTV.

She relishes the freedom, spontaneity and joyful reactions produced by her live fashion illustration service, creating customised artworks for in-store activations, private functions and commercial events such as the Spring Racing Carnival.

As a kid, I loved to draw…
Flowers. surprise, surprise.
A movie I never tire of is…
Jurassic Park. Also, would 100% wear any of the costumes from this movie.
My project I’m proudest of to-date is…
An enormous mural for the Coles Local Toorak Village store. It was by far my most ambitious project ever and included 40 different portraits.
For me, the best kinds of projects are…
Ones that come with wiggle room! An open brief that pushes me out of my comfort zone makes me feel both nervous and excited.
My favourite clients are those who…
Include a complement with their feedback!
My current tool of choice is…
An iPad Pro but I will always hold a place in my heart for paint and pencils. I have just invested a very beautiful set of Japanese Gouache so I can brush up on my painting skills.
